Formatting an embedded field in Crystal 2016 Support Pack 5

Formatting an embedded field in Crystal 2016 Support Pack 5

Formatting an embedded field in Crystal 2016 Support Pack 5

(OP)
I am trying to format a field that is embedded in a text box. I used to be able to right click and have an option to format embedded field, but it is no longer there.

Is there a workaround for this?

RE: Formatting an embedded field in Crystal 2016 Support Pack 5

Add the field and test box separately, and format them as desired. Then drag the field onto the text box.

RE: Formatting an embedded field in Crystal 2016 Support Pack 5

(OP)
I tried that. I updated the formatting, then dragged it into the text box and the formatting was gone.
I am just highlighting the field in yellow if it doesn't match another field in the report. The highlighting works when I just add it to the report but as soon as I copy it into the text box it disappears?

RE: Formatting an embedded field in Crystal 2016 Support Pack 5

I am using 2016 SP6
Should be the same behaviour.

Double-click the text object to put it in edit mode.
Then click the field to highlight it.
Then right-click and choose formatting.
Depending on the field type the dialog will be slightly different.
